Advertisement I just introduced myself on another thread. I'm new here. I'm not a spider hobbyist or expert, but I am fascinated by spiders and am regularly relocating them from my house to the garden. I love to know what I'm dealing with and I sometimes keep them for a short while to get a good look at them before I release them. I found two (one yesterday and one today). The photos aren't good but I'm thinking the female with the spiderlings is a wolf spider - rabidosa rabida?. And I'm wondering if the other is also a wolf spider or maybe a grass spider. I'm having debates with some friends. They were roughly the same size - about 2 inches (including legs), but the second one was thinner and more delicate looking than the first, granted, it wasn't carrying around a couple of hundred babies. Thanks so much for your help. Sorry the photos are not very clear, and I didn't get the eyes.... I need a better camera.
